Effective August 1, 2012, LiftOne, LLC will become the authorized dealer for Yale materials handling equipment in the Tennessee markets previously serviced by KMH Systems. LiftOne has announced its intent to purchase certain new Yale inventory and aftermarket parts from KMH Systems Inc. KMH presently is an authorized dealer of Yale brand forklifts in portions of central Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana. LiftOne is an authorized dealer of Hyster brand forklifts in portions of Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. The purchase is expected to be completed on or before July 31, 2012.
“The opportunity to add Yale forklifts to our Hyster product offering will better position us to enhance our leadership position in providing comprehensive solutions for our customers in the materials handling industry,” said Edward Weisiger, Jr., CEO of Carolina Tractor, the parent company of LiftOne. “The Yale brand in addition to our full suite of materials handling equipment and systems will allow LiftOne to meet the needs of more customers within select markets of Central Tennessee. LiftOne’s dedication to parts and service, focus on customer efficiency and low cost of ownership remains unfaltering. Our highly trained technicians will continue to service and support all brands of materials handling equipment. We are both honored and energized by the prospect of becoming an authorized dealer of Hyster and Yale products in portions of the Tennessee market.”
Bill Pfleger, president of Yale Distribution, added, “We are excited to merge the unique strengths and capabilities of the Yale product line with LiftOne’s outstanding history of sales and service support. We look forward to the advantages LiftOne will bring to longstanding Yale customers as well as the opportunity for developing new customers in portions of Central Tennessee.”
